Looking for a Gluten-Free Pasta Brand that actually tastes amazing? Read on! I’ve been gluten-free since I was 23-years-old. Before that, I’d occasionally eat gluten and I never felt like my health was where I wanted it to be. I had a constantly stomach upset, inflammation and bloating. All over. Seriously. My entire body was bloated. Looking back at pictures from when I ate gluten, even occasionally, I was just incredibly puffy. Since then, I got a celiac diagnosis and have become even more strict about being gluten-free.…

Green Bean Casserole (Gluten-Free, Low-Carb)

This green bean casserole is low carb, gluten-free and perfect for the holidays! GBC IN THE HOUSE! It’s that time of year, ya’ll! November is here which to me means holiday season! And to be quite honest, I’d put up a Christmas tree right this second if it wouldn’t drive my husband crazy every time he saw it for the next two months. The lowly green bean casserole is often passed over for fancier side dishes on holidays, like sweet potato casserole or stuffing. But it’s always been one of my favorites. I can’t get enough of those crunchy onions on top – which, let’s face it, are basically just onion rings. The other bonus about this recipe is that it’s SUPER easy. I usually try to make it from scratch, but this year I need to simplify. I need quick. I host Thanksgiving every year and I make everything…

Cauliflower Potato Soup (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Low Carb)

This cauliflower potato soup is paleo, gluten-free, low carb and insanely delicious! As much as I love summer and I’m sad to see it go, I’m doing my best to embrace soup season. I know people absolutely love fall and to be honest, I’ve never been one of them. But this year I’m determined to change all that! I’m embracing all things cozy: sweaters, cute boots, fall scented essential oils, pumpkin picking with my kids and ALL the soup for dinner. Which is actually great, because who knew soup was so freaking easy to make? I don’t know why I don’t make it more often. It requires one pot and my blender or immersion blender (I prefer this for a chunkier, heartier soup). You just let it simmer on the stove and it requires very little work overall. This recipe, while incredibly healthy, also feels incredibly decadent. It’s rich and…

Poor side dishes are often overlooked for the main course, the protein. Listen, side dishes may be the supporting actors but they MAKE the meal.

They’ve also been shown to have cholesterol-lowering and anti-carcinogenic effects. Plus they taste amazing. They add a nice umami flavor to this simple Asian side dish, as well as a nice bite from the meaty texture. Health benefits of Bok…

Blueberry Cobbler (Gluten-Free, Paleo, Low Carb)

It’s summer. And to me that means fruit cobblers for dessert. Particularly this blueberry cobbler that’s gluten-free, paleo and low carb. I just prefer a blueberry cobbler to a peach cobbler. Fresh peaches? Definitely. Cooked, warm, mushy peaches? Nah. But blueberries hold up perfectly to the hot oven and the hot termperatures outside. I don’t know why I hate warm peaches but love warm blueberries. There’s just something so good about a blueberry cobbler. They’re even better when topped with coconut cream mixed with maple syrup (highly recommend) or ice cream. This actually would have been insane with ice cream. Dammit I totally should have bought vanilla ice cream. But if you don’t have it either, just use coconut cream. It’s also crazy good. Also, my kids, who are 2 and almost 1 – devoured this. It’s not too sweet as I only use a 1/2 cup of coconut sugar,…

My Daily Supplement Regimen

My daily supplement regimen is an example of supplements I regularly take, not an indication of what you personally should take. The contents of this article are not meant to substitute medical advice. Always check with your healthcare provider before adding or removing a supplement or medication. I have shared a few supplement regimens in the past and I wanted to do another because it’s always changing. I have never and would never recommend anyone continually take the same supplements over and over (excluding a few we could all use, like magnesium). I get regular blood work to determine where I may be lacking and supplement based on that, as well as how I feel. ASHWAGANDA I take this brand of ashwaganda. Ashwaganda is an adaptogen that helps you adapt to stress. It reduces anxiety and promotes an overall sense of calm. I’ve been taking ashwaganda on and off for…

What I Eat In A Day For Anxiety Management

Beneficial bacteria & balanced blood sugar are two huge factors for mitigating anxiety. Here are some examples of what I eat in a day for anxiety management! Anxiety has long been something I’ve dealt with in my life. With two drug addicts for parents, I’m not sure if it was clinical anxiety or just good sense. Either way, I’ve spent the last several (maybe ten?) years delving into every topic imaginable trying to overcome it. I now know that diet is one of the most critical factors so today I’m sharing what I eat in a day for anxiety management. I’ve written a lot about anxiety over the years (you can check out those articles here). It’s something I’ve struggled with on and off and I’m finally at a place where I feel like I’ve overcome it. I’ve overcome it in the sense that while it will never be completely…

Free Summer Meal Plan

I’ve been more relaxed about meal planning this summer but this week felt like a good time to start again! Check out my free summer meal plan below! This summer has been amazing. I’m growing a lot of veggies in my backyard and getting fresh produce from the farmers market every week. I absolutely love summer. One of my favorite things to do is grill a bunch of fresh food for my family and hang out on our back deck. It’s just such an amazing season. Interestingly enough, I’m being a bit more lax about food lately. In the past I’ve been on very low carb, healing protocols due to gut issues. But I never really felt better. Now, I’m eating white rice if I want it. I’m not stressing over having a cookie with my son. And I’m not beating myself up over that extra glass of wine at…
